Item description for Our Mother Saint Paul by Beverly Roberts Gaventa...

Overview
In his epistles, Paul at various points uses maternal imagery to talk about his apostolic labors, sometimes actually referring to himself as a mother. For example, Paul writes that he must behave "like a nurse caring for her own children." Later, he writes, he "is in labor again" and must continue to nurse his fellow Christians with milk. These images, though known among earlier generations of Christians, today remain largely both unacknowledged and unexplored in thinking about Paul and his work. In Our Mother Saint Paul, Beverly Gaventa retrieves these images, explores their significance for understanding apostolic ministry, and demonstrates how they point beyond their original contexts and offer unique perspectives for understanding Paul's thought-as well as the larger, cosmic understanding of the gospel.

Reviews - What do customers think about Our Mother Saint Paul?

from Westminster John Knox  Jan 31, 2008
In his epistles, Paul at various points uses maternal imagery to talk about his apostolic labors, sometimes actually referring to himself as a mother. For example, Paul writes that he must behave "like a nurse caring for her own children." Later, he writes, he "is in labor again" and must continue to nurse his fellow Christians with milk. These images, though known among earlier generations of Christians, today remain largely both unacknowledged and unexplored in thinking about Paul and his work. In this book, the author retrieves these images, explores their significance for understanding apostolic ministry, and demonstrates how they point beyond their original contexts and offer unique perspectives for understanding Paul's thought-as well as the larger, cosmic understanding of the gospel. The author is Helen H. P. Manson Professor of New Testament Literature and Exegesis at Princeton Theological Seminary. Among her works are the award-winning Blessed One: Protestant Perspectives on Mary and First and Second Thessalonians in the Interpretation commentary series.
